When I was a kid, I loved fur coats.
I loved how they would hide all the little things that I loved, like my cat or my dog’s ears.
Then, about a decade ago, it seemed like it was time to give up on the coats.
It’s now a fashion faux pas and one that has affected my friends, who no longer want to go to conventions or parties wearing fur coats and have no interest in buying them.
My friend Jaxon said it was because of the fur coats’ tendency to hide the fact they were stuffed.
“Fur coats were just too big, they were too fluffy, and they were just so cute,” she said.
“The fur coat is just a way to hide those little details.”
It is not just the fur coat that has been changing.
People are also wearing a range of different accessories to cover up their fur, from the faux fur boots to the faux leather boots.
One of my favourite things to wear is the faux-fur leather boots, which come in all sorts of styles and colours.
The fur coats themselves have changed, too.
“We used to go out to dinner wearing fur, and I still do,” my friend Jazmin said.
But now she is happy to wear a white coat.
“I can just feel how it feels on my skin,” she explained.
“But if I wear white fur, it’s a little bit more effort to go through the coat.”
My friend Emily said she prefers to wear white while she goes out.
“It’s the way I feel.
It feels so good on my face, it feels like a little white dress,” she added.
